Abstract: Gianotti–Crosti syndrome (GCS) is a distinctive, self-limiting acropapular or papulovesicular eruption. Typical clinical presentation is that of a monomorphic, nonpruritic eruption most commonly involving the face, neck, buttocks, and extremities. It tends to occur in childhood, though infrequently it has been reported in adults. We report GCS occurring in an infant following immunization.
